I have not tried to embed a video that I have shot myself but I have embedded videos from an online source (YouTube eg.) It is as easy (and the same) as it is to embed a photo. I simply copy and paste the URL from an online video source. Or choose the "more reply options" at the bottom of the reply window. From there you simply click "choose file" (under the heading ATTACH FILES) and chose the video file from your computer you wish to attach. Hope that helps.

Just a test ... I copied the address from the bar across the top of the site screen (youtube).  Then I just hit paste on this page.

Left click on video image then choose "copy url" then paste into reply window. That will give you a direct link.

Yeah ... perhaps it's easier to embed a video from your computer.

Noooo ... don't click on it.  You'll download a video, which takes a while. 

So ... doing the link to YouTube or other video sites IS the easiest, for all involved.

I know how to post a link, but how do you integrate youtube videos into your post so the reader doesn't have to open up another window?

Try this, M.  when you are looking at a Youtube video ... highlight and copy the ENTIRE address in the tracking bar at the top of the page.

 

[attachment=50495:Untitled.jpg]

 

Then paste that here.

 

When you post it ... it will show up as the actual video ... not the link.
